The visits of Mr Clive Jones to Aberdare Boys’ Comprehensive School,
to give a short course on Innovative Thinking, 1983

from Maldwyn Jones, ABGS/ABCS 1976–83


Picture caption reads as follows:“Mr Clive Jones talks to pupils Mark Lawrence, Maldwyn Jones, Jonathan Evans,
Paul Figgins, Russell McDonald, David Evans and Michael Davies, watched by Mr. Noel Thomas and Mr. Ray Williams.
Steven Davies and Martin Hill were not in the picture, as they were taking exams at the time.”

Mr. Clive Jones was based in Abernant but ran a programme in Cardiff University on “Innovative Thinking”. He wanted to give something back to the community, so he volunteered to run a weekly course for lower sixth form students at Aberdare, and possibly at Mountain Ash Comprehensive School as well. Steven Davies and Martin Hill are mentioned in the caption because they were members of the course too, but could not be there for the photograph.
